"It's Like the Reincarnation of Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers and Muddy Waters from the early 50's.Incredible!"

In this day and age we are constantly surrounded by more of everything. The world is moving at a faster pace. It seems as if we have to shout to be heard above the din. The blues as an art form is not immune to this modernization. Over the past several decades, the blues has evolved into many things. It has been stretched so far that it is barely recognizable. Today when listening to what is being passed off as blues, we are likely to experience high volume, high intensity and a rock influenced alternative to the real thing. The music has more of everything, except blues.The Silver Kings have taken a courageous and fresh approach and move the music back to a time when popular commercial tastes was not the aspiration of the blues musician. The Silver Kings approach the music from a similar perspective that was the hallmark the pioneers of early electric post war blues.The Silver Kings revisit the exciting period of the late 1940’s and early 1950’s when modern recording technology, electricity and blues collided to create music that was very special. This was a period where pure artistic expression ruled the day. It was time before the commercial, youth market came to dominate the record business and hold sway over the musicians themselves. The music that had migrated from the South to the North added a new urban, amplified sound. This brand of blues music that featured restraint, dynamic phrasing, subtlety, nuance and depth is a sound that is rarely heard today.Similar to the way the music was being performed and recorded in its peak; The Silver Kings attempt to capture the essence of that original electric sound. Guitarist, Mark Mumea and vocalist / harmonica player, Karl Cabbage perform primarily as a duo and have found that elusive raw excitement that lies at the heart of this music. With the use of authentic, vintage equipment from this period, they take an understated, minimalistic approach that opens the music up. This style allows for a wider range of human emotion and expression. This gives listeners the opportunity to come to the music instead of forcing the music onto them. Their passion for the original form of the music clearly shines through in every note they play.It could be said that The Silver Kings are the living embodiment of the adage that ‘something old can indeed be something new.’ I say, ‘The Silver Kings are like the music they play and that is something that is truly timeless.’ (~~David Mac , BLUES JUNCTION Productions)
